EnLink to continue Utica expansion with 45-mile condensate pipeline

EnLink Midstream Partners LP and EnLink Midstream LLC, affiliates of EnLink Midstream, plan to build a 45-mile, 8-in. condensate pipeline and six natural gas compression and condensate stabilization facilities in the Ohio River Valley at a total cost of more than $250 million.

The expandable, 50,000-b/d condensate pipeline will connect to the EnLink’s existing 200-mile pipeline in eastern Ohio and West Virginia, providing producers in the Utica shale region with additional market access through the company’s Bells Run barge facility and Black Run rail terminal.

EnLink expects the pipeline to be completed in second-half 2015, and an open season could take place in the fall.

Part of the project includes a long-term, fee-based agreement with Utica exploration and production company Eclipse Resources for compression and stabilization services and for the purchase of stabilized condensate. Eclipse is running four horizontal rigs in the play and expects to add an additional two rigs by yearend.

EnLink will build and operate six natural gas compression and condensate stabilization facilities in Noble, Belmont, and Guernsey counties in Ohio. When finished, the facilities will have a combined capacity of 560 MMcfd of natural gas compression and 41,500 b/d of condensate stabilization.

The company expects the first two compression and condensate stabilization facilities to be operational in this year’s second half and the remaining four facilities to be operational by yearend 2015.

EnLink also plans to add 120,000 bbl of above ground storage to its Bells Run facility to support the project, bringing its total storage capacity at the facility to more than 360,000 bbl.

The company’s expansion in the region will end with the company operating more than 250 miles of pipeline, 11 natural gas compression and condensate stabilization facilities with a total capacity of 1 billion bcfd and 60,000 b/d, respectively, a fleet of more than 110 trucks, and eight brine disposal wells.
